I land Wednesday afternoon at 2:46 PM, and take off Saturday night at 7:51 PM.

I too am staying at the Wilshire Grand.  By myself this time apparently since none of the GalacticHunter regulars are making the trek out to L.A.

Are any of you meeting for breakfast (more like a midnight snack) or planning a time to get in line on Thursday morning?

There's a ton of us staying at the Wilshire Grand too. Feel free to come eat with us if you are staying alone. There's like 40 of us in the hotel plus I think room sales are slated for Friday night so there will be stuff to do and people to meet. Jay Coulston is GH staff and he should be spending quite a bit of time with us too. :)

My wife will allow another person or two to cash at my house if anyone really needs to save some cash. PenDragon is taking up residence. Also, between myself, my neighbor who's going and public transportation, it should be easy to get to and from the convention center.

Drop me a PM.

Due to a rather unfortunate turn of events, I really need a roommate(s) if anyone is interested... I'm at the Wilshire Grand as well and will be there from the 22nd to the 29th, so 7 nights total. It is only about half a mile from the con center too, the second or third closest hotel, so there is no need to worry about transportation or car rental...

Here is the Hotel's website: Wilshire Grand LA. There is a virtual tour on there, these are some really nice looking rooms. The rooms and lobby have high speed internet. Here is a list of all the amenities:

Standard Rooms
Complimentary high speed internet access in all guest rooms
30 TV channels including HBO, ESPN and the Cartoon Network
Writing Desk
Remote Control TV with Lodge Net and Internet Access
Multi-line phones
Clock Radio
Iron and Board
Makeup mirror
Hair Dryer
Custom climate control
Double panel glass windows
Free access to Gold's Gym (accross the street) 



HOTEL NAME:          Wilshire Grand Los Angeles
HOTEL ADDRESS:          930 Wilshire Boulevard
               Los Angeles, CA  90017

ARRIVAL DATE:          Tuesday, May 22, 2007   
DEPARTURE DATE:          Tuesday, May 29, 2007   
# OF NIGHTS:          7
HOTEL EARLY DEPARTURE FEE:1 night's room plus tax

TYPE:                STANDARD ROOM   
OCCUPANCY:          Double - 2 Persons   
SPECIAL REQUESTS:       REQ NON-SMOKING ROOM


RATE:                $179.00
APPLICABLE HOTEL TAX:       14.08%
ESTIMATED ROOM+TAX TOTAL:     $1429.42

So that would be $714 if you stay the same nights I'm there. If you can only stay for 5 of the nights you only need to pay for those 5, which would be $536 I need someone who will be there at least 4 nights though, if not I'm going to have to find somewhere else to stay. It is expensive but it is damn nice looking hotel. If anyone else is looking for a roommate/place to stay... pick me! ;)

I am that unfortunate event. C4 just isn't financially in the cards for me, due to recent happenings at work, and the possibility of a family funeral that week, I can't go.

I was really looking forward to the trip, but I just can't make it. :(

I hope you all have fun. 8)
